Back pain presents in 3 different forms:
intervertabral disk - whereby pressure from the upper body compresses the disk and can cause a herniation of the nucleus pulposa through the annulus fibrosis which puts pressure on the nerves. A common cause of this is slouching and a posterior pelvic tilt.
Facet Syndrome - where the posterior facets of the vertebrae become irritated through shear and torsion forces. A small bursae on the facet can become inflamed and cause inflammation local to the nerves that exit the foramen. This is usually found with those that have a lumbar lordosis and is the commonest form of back pain.
Adhesions along the neural pathways - This is the hardest form of back pain to treat and diagnose and is usually only discovered in cadavers. It is a consequence of a previous disk herniation so a history of back pain usually creates more back pain in the future.
The best remedy for back pain is a sports massage.
Back pain is resolved at Muswell Hill Personal Training.
Sports massage is a great way to relax and do something good for your body. It is a great remedial approach for various ailments such as tennis elbow, chronic back pain or sciatica. Its primary function is to interact with the involved structure, be it muscle, ligament or facsia, and break it down using deep and slow forces.
If the problem still persists, the client is educated upon how to have better posture or active exercises that will relieve the problem by either activating the antagonist or the involved muscle itself.
Sports massage usually costs a little bit more then a deep tissue massage because the therapist has undergone more training. Both massages can be quite similar but sports massage tends to be more remedially based and localised in its efforts whilst deep tissue is a more relaxing and holistic treatment.
